Tax investigations

Experienced, astute, cost-effective

HM Revenue and Customs (HMRC) is increasing the number and scope of tax investigations into both individuals and businesses, covering all aspects of potential underpayments of tax, including offshore investments, personal and corporate Self Assessment Tax Returns,  PAYE and NIC compliance and VAT.

HMRC investigations are often complex and lengthy. For individuals and businesses, an enquiry can be a major distraction from their normal activities, notwithstanding the worry that often accompanies such an investigation.

If you are experiencing problems with detailed enquires, Code of Practice 9 and other serious suspected fraud investigations, or troubling PAYE or NIC enquiries from HMRC, then our specialist Tax/ VAT investigations team can help you. We provide full support during the course of the enquiry and will deal directly with HMRC, securing the correct tax treatment of any disputed matters and negotiating the best settlement with HMRC.

Our experienced team will help you resolve your problems and disputes with HMRC in a timely and cost-effective way. Depending on the nature and seriousness of the enquiry, we will put together a team of specialists appropriate to the investigation. Serious investigations can involve complex accounting and tax issues going back many years. By using a bespoke team of experts we can ensure that the correct outcome is achieved.

Where there is a need to deal with non-UK tax authorities, our membership of PKF International allows us access to local tax experts in most jurisdictions around the world.
